Where Are They Now: Former Bruins

28th
Jul. × ’11

If there’s one thing that Boston Bruins fans have learned in the past decade or two it is that former players can come back to bite you in the backside. Here’s where some of the past wearers of Black and Gold are now: The Vancouver Canucks seem to be putting together a collections. Andrew Alberts […]

The Next CBA: Why the NHL Salary Cap Floor Must Be Lowered

27th
Jul. × ’11

When the lockout ended and the sport we loved resumed action much battered and bedamned in the public perception, no one was sure how the salary cap would work. Now we know how it’s worked around, we also know how it fails. We’ve seen artistic arrangements that let teams spread out the money for a […]

Leveraging Bergeron: What Could Be for the Bruins

15th
Jul. × ’11

The Boston Bruins have accomplished what every hockey player in history has dreamed of. They did it in unprecedented fashion by winning three game sevens, beating the President’s Trophy Winners in the finals and going blow for blow with their arch rivals in the opening round. All of those are great team accomplishments, they speak […]

Development Camp…Part Deux

12th
Jul. × ’11

So when last we met, I was waxing poetic about the talent on the ice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Ma., where the future B’s (they hope) had gone through Day 4 of Development Camp.  Well, the young men were back on the ice for Day 5, and there were some notables in attendance as well.  Peter […]

Boston Bruins Development Camp Day 5 and Wrap

11th
Jul. × ’11

The arena was again well filled with fans, some dressed a tiny bit more realistically for the frigid conditions of the Ristuccia arena than others. Some of the people were the same folks who had been several days running, but there were also a lot of people who hadn’t been the last two days. Claude […]

And One Time, At Development Camp…

11th
Jul. × ’11

Today was Day 4 of Bruins Development Camp. All the usual suspects were present again for some drills and some fun! Session 1 took the raw recruits through the drills they have gotten used to over the last few days. Session 2 gave the masses present a glimpse of what the future might look like, […]

Development Camp

10th
Jul. × ’11

I was at Development Camp today for drills and scrimmage. No power-skating today for which I’m sure the players are thankful. This is the third year I’ve gone to the Bruins development camp and the range of talent is both narrower and on average higher than the first one I went to. There’s not a […]

Win, Lose or Huh? The Offseason So Far pt 2

8th
Jul. × ’11

The Boston Bruins have the very unique opportunity to stay largely intact after a Stanley Cup Win, and potentially repeat. This hasn’t been done in years. Given that they finished their historic run just days before the NHL Entry Draft no one should be shocked they made no moves during the pause for breath between […]

Where’s The Love: Boston Bruins Powerplay

6th
Jul. × ’11

After a dismal powerplay during the post season, and an aggressively mediocre power play in the regular season, one would have thought fixing this would be priority number one. A week into free agency the power play is worse than it was not better. The inconsistent Michael Ryder has moved on. Mark Recchi has retired […]
